Maanantai. Monday.

Well, maanantai is long gone, but since Mondays are my very favorite day of the week I didn't want to leave out the grand ending to my Finnish weekdays... After any weekend of family and church get togethers, on Monday, I am ready to get things done.

This Monday was perhaps a little different since school is out. I spent several hours writing, which is unusual during this season of homeschooling. What a gift. And sometime around noon, I put a mitt on my hand and played catch with the boy... And later in the day I pulled out my current Tunisian crochet project and pointed myself at this wall and stitched away...

I'd say one week of daily blogging is enough. I'll see you again soon, but for now I have a middle grade novel to conquer. And here are a few last things that I'm thinking about...

  • Finding a small gift for my son to put in his shoes on St Nicholas Day.
  • Making cranberry conserve for the clan on Thursday.
  • Wanting to get most of my Christmas shopping done well ahead of Christmas--so I can focus on lots of baking for neighbors and tea with friends. 
  • And moving on to learning the months of the year. We have no idea yet how to say December, or January, or February in Finnish. We're only four chapters into our 18-chapter lesson book--with SO much left to learn. 

Wish us luck!
